Throughout the pandemic, organizations needed to remain nimble and responsive to what was occurring within their buildings and communities related to the spread of Covid. Both CMS and The Joint Commission permit organizations to modify their visitation practices to safeguard patients, staff, and visitors.  Earlier this year, Planetree International released the “Family Presence Policy Decision Making Toolkit 2021”, which focuses specifically on decision making during Covid. Expanding on that concept, we are pleased to provide you with our Patient Visitation Policy and Decision Grid, along with a copy of the Planetree document. Our decision grid expands the risk assessment process for determining feasibility of visitation along broader conditions that may influence your organization’s decision to expand or reduce visitation.
